Had my 3 month post FCR visit with my oncologist. MY numbers are all normal, neutrophils are going up, red blood cells and platelets going up since last visit 3 months ago. I feel like I did 5 years ago and am in good health. I am an avid downhill skier and just completed a double black diamond skiing class, exhausting, but gratifying and did a few chutes that were on my bucket list.
I am also a singer/songwriter and am in the process of recording a CD of my music with some of Canada's top musicians, most notably the rhythm section (drums and Bass player) from Balckie and the Rodeo Kings, (also on my bucket list). Hoping to play some outdoor folk festivals with the completion of my CD. The studio we are recording at is the same studio that Justin Beiber records in. Might not be a big selling feature but what the hey?
One last note, my oncologist did a MRD test (minimal residual disease) on my peripheral blood last week and they could find no cancer cells. Good news!!
They did not do a bone marrow biopsy as we never did one at the start, same with a CT scan. I believe that I am for the moment in remission, and do not know how long it will last, the disease will act on it's own schedule but for now I am very thankful for the health that I have right now. Next step see my oncologist in 3 months.
